We have been there several times for dinner only and we never been disappointed. The Service and food are flawless. Great dining. WE always go there whenever we have something to celebrate. Although, be aware that it is a bit pricey but in my opinion, it is worth it.

The Glasshouse is more than just a 5* buffet restaurant, it offer fine food with great service in the most amazing setting. We were a party of 10 and there was some issues when we booked as they don't like large parties at a weekend even though they can easily accommodate. However the food was tremendous. We all over ate... More

My wife & I visited this over hyped, much talked about restaurant for a birthday lunch. Although the food was plentiful & of a high standard I still think it is terribly OVER PRICED!!
